CRITIC REVIEWS


“Something for the Tiger King crowd, but eschews sensationalism to deliver MUCH MORE BITE.”

Donald Liebenson

Certified Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer


The Conservation Game should have the same impact as The Cove and Blackfish.

“It will bring audiences cheering to their feet.”

Scott Marks

Certified Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer


“SHOCKING”
“Will change the animal entertainment industry forever.”

If Tiger King is the tabloid take on the big cat story, The Conservation Game is Pro Publica.”

Tiger King is Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead and The Conservation Game is Hamlet. The farce is good for a few laughs, but the tragedy has more staying power.”

“EYE-OPENING”

“The Conservation Game is riveting, thanks to Michael Webber’s superb direction that keeps you on the edge of your seat.”

Lois Alter Mark
Film Critic | Alliance of Women Film Journalists
Award-Winning Writer / Former Entertainment Weekly Contributor / Member of San Diego Film Critics Society


“Rivals both Blackfish and The Cove for sheer bullseye effectiveness.”

“Wisely, director Michael Webber takes an approach that is the polar opposite of The Tiger King.”

“Well-reasoned and far from sensationalized.”

George Wolf
Film Critic | The Columbus Underground


“AN ABSOLUTE BOMBSHELL”

“The way Blackfish blew the lid off Seaworld, The Conservation Game will rip the curtain back on celebrity conservationists.”


“ONE OF THE BEST DOCUMENTARIES
OF THE FESTIVAL”

“Though The Conservation Game takes place within the same time frame (as Tiger King), its focus is MORE SERIOUS, its message MORE IMPORTANT.

 Greg Salvatore,
Film Critic | From the Balcony | SIFF Doc Fest

“REMARKABLE”
“RIVETING”
“An absolute dose of adrenaline in the documentary field.

Robert Reineke
Film Critic | Where the Long Trail Ends

“EXHILARATING”
The Conservation Game is a grown-up, no-nonsense docu-exposé of the highest order, succeeding where Tiger King failed.

“The spirit of investigative journalism on display here sets The Conservation Game apart from its contemporaries.”

“While there’s much to praise with regards to the film’s fleet-footed writing and editing, the highest highs spur from its subjects’ driving passion in pursuit of their righteous cause. “
